Attention Better After 50 women — are you a worrier? Do you or a loved one you know suffer with anxiety? Well you are not alone.
Women in their 50’s and 60’s are worrying. That’s a fact. And, according to Lynn Lyons, it’s normal. But the way we worry, ruminate, our patterns of how we deal with our anxiety, has been embedded over the years.
In her new book The Anxiety Audit, Lynn talks about identifying our patterns and how to shift them. Lynn’s book is incredibly helpful for those of us who are worriers.
Women over 50 know their roles are changing and we need to pivot. The tools we used as the key player in our families requires new strategies. Lynn’s techniques for dealing with anxiety and worry and RPN, repetitive negative thinking, are simple to understand and incredibly helpful.
Please listen in to my interview with Lynn and share with those you love and hopefully this will be helpful to you.
